home carpet cleaning vs professional

I was wondering if anyone knew of a recipe to make professional quality carpet cleaning solution. I had a source for this, but can no longer contact them. What I am looking for is a professional grade pre wash soap. any advice is much appreciated. Thanks.

I'd prefer to clean my own opposed to hiring someone. This allows me to know how often I need to clean it and to ensure that it is actually getting clean. I have a nice carpet cleaner and it doesn't take too long, so there is no point in hiring someone to use it.

I'm all for having a home model carpet cleaning machine ( I have one) but you are kidding yourself if you think it can do anything close to the job of a truck-mounted unit that utilizes a vacuum driven from a PTO on the truck engine transmission. You DO need to get a conscientious operator, though. I have had the best luck in not using large franchise companies but a neighborhood one-person company.
